Review from BP

I love the Biograph and when I had the opportunity to see "It's a Wonderful Life" there I could not pass it up. The acting was splendid and the set well done to remind us of the time period of the story. This was a "preview" but you would never...continued

Review from Elaine

As a big fan of the movie, I expected I would enjoy a "radio play" of It's A Wonderful Life, but would not be as moved as I always am by the movie. Was I wrong! I found myself so engaged by the players in this production that I was teary more...continued

My wife and I attended the show Saturday afternoon. The show was delightful. The lines were spoken crisply and clearly. The cast was animated. The setting was warm and holiday-like. Singing the carols was a perfect introduction to the show. ...continued

Excellent! The design of the production was terrific, incorporating the audience into the old style radio broadcast, with On Air and Applause signs, along with sponsor ads and sound effects. It was a great time, and a great production from a...continued

From the moment we arrived in the theater space we were transported in time to another time and place. The characters on the stage made the audience welcome by creating a festive atmosphere. The players were outstanding each and everyone. We...continued

I thought this was an absolutely wonderful production. "It's A Wonderful Life" is my favorite movie of all time and Biograph honored the original film while adding their own twists. I was amazed at the talented actors and all the different...continued

This was a wonderful performance. The actors were not only friendly and very expressive, but the entire performance brought the entire story to life. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a little something different to do this...continued

What a great show! Small, personal theater, beautifully renovated and comfortable. The cast was amazing, it really takes you back in time. I felt like I should have dressed in vintage clothing to attend. :) I recommend to everybody, the cast...continued

A new holiday tradition. Took our folks and they just LOVED it. Said it made them feel like they were back in their living room listening on the radio. My husband and I were amazed at the acting and the way they used the sound effects. Great job.

Don't miss it! A true holiday gem for Chicago. Attended with my 11 and 13 year old girl and boy and they both loved it. And at one point near the end, thought I detected my husband's eyes tearing up. Lots of singing and laughing as well. A...continued

This is a wonderful kid friendly production. My boys really love shows like "Prairie Home Companion" so to see a show that is set as a radio broadcast was very intriguing for them. No lulls in the show, but also no intermissions, so your kid...continued

Great Show.

While listening to the Radio Show I could see the whole movie playing in my head. Usually I don't like knowing the movie version of a live performance but here it would very well

Highly recommend it for a Holiday feeling....continued

Review from Adrienne Taylor

A wonderful evening, ALL of our group loved it. We thought the actors were extremely talented and thought the production was very well done. We would go back to this intimate venue, not a bad seat in the house.

"It's a Wonderful Life: Live at The Biograph" was a perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Before the show started there was a group sing-along and we were treated to cookies and milk after the performance. The actors, pianist and foley guy...continued
